One half of founding members of British band Squeeze, Glenn Tilbrook has a catalogue of hits to entertain fans when he plays in Cobham, near Gravesend, and Ashford this week.
But he’s doing more than that - he’s raising awareness and donations for the Trussell Trust, a charity supporting a network of food banks across the country.
A man who has always had a social conscience, he’s not only donating the profits from his merchandise - including an exclusive four-track EP to the trust from the tour, he’ll also be collecting for food banks during the tour.
Glenn said: “It is shameful that in the 21st century there are people that can’t afford to put food on the table.
“Anyone, from any walk of life, can fall upon dire times, and I hope that by doing this tour it will remind people that there is a very real need. Most of us can do something to help - be it giving some food or a little money – and I hope people coming to the shows are inspired to donate.”
With songwriting partner Chris Difford, Glenn brought us hits including Up The Junction, Pulling Mussells (From The Shell) and Cool For Cats. After two break ups, the past decade has seen Squeeze in some of their finest form, with two critically acclaimed albums and sold out tours. Glenn will be at St Mary Magdalene Church in Cobham on Thursday, March 21 and at Revelation Ashford on Friday, March 22.
